British alternative band, Coldplay, have a musical style that translates well to different musical genres and, subsequently, has made them one of the most internationally successful bands in modern rock.
Which is the main reason why the band may have regrets for the practically impossible to pronounce title of their latest album, Mylo Xyloto.
Foreign fans are apparently having a hard time pronouncing the title which Chris Martin claims to have been two”invented” words that “you couldn’t even Google.”
Earlier today, the band appeared on Good Morning America where they performed and went into detail on the Catch-22 of their creative name choice.

While Mylo Xyloto has been immensely successful, Martin still says he has regrets with the title.
“It’s just something that we thought looked really good,” explained Martin. “But everywhere we go around the world people pronounce it in the most crazy ways and we’re beginning to regret it now.”
